Im having a SearchForItem Action witch runs on SearchCriteriaForm and provides the results for a itemList.jsp.
Now the list contains a Link for every 'available' item wich leads to a RequestForItem Action.
When the RequestForItem Action is done I jump back to the list again.
Since it's a bigger concurrent system my idea was to store the SearchCriteriaForm in the session context and then forward from the RequestForItem Action to the SearchForItem Action to update the result(list) since the call of RequestForItem Action itself changed my system as well as other users could have.
I want to save the user the trouble of entering all search criteria again, simply refetch from the DB and redisplay the changed list. And of course reuse my SearchForItem Action code, why implement it a second time.
But it doesn't seem to work.
and of course in RequestForItem: ActionForward af = null; ... af = mapping.findForward("/search");
